This Specialization consists of four courses: Introduction to Android graphics, Android Graphics with OpenGL ES, 3D Graphics in Android: Sensors and VR, and Advanced App Development in Android Capstone.
This course provides a comprehensive understanding of the fundamentals of 2D and 3D graphics in Android. Learners will acquire practical knowledge to implement these concepts in Android, preparing them for more advanced courses and applications such as OpenGL and Virtual Reality in Android. The final assignment will serve as a valuable artefact for learners' professional portfolios.
Building on the fundamentals of OpenGL and OpenGL ES in Android, this course covers the mechanics of OpenGL and practical applications to draw 2D and 3D objects. Learners will gain a solid understanding of the OpenGL Pipeline and Shading Language, enabling them to draw increasingly complex 3D objects. Practical exercises and a summative project are integral components of this course, enhancing learners' skills and portfolios.
This course serves as an ideal introduction to creating virtual environments in Android. Covering animation, lighting, reflection, textures, and VR experiences, learners will acquire a comprehensive skill set in this burgeoning field. Practical exercises and a summative project will allow learners to apply their knowledge and skills, culminating in the creation of immersive 3D environments and VR experiences.
The Capstone project is designed for learners with basic knowledge in Android app development seeking to further their expertise in computer graphics and virtual reality in Android. This project provides an opportunity to apply the knowledge and skills gained from the first three courses in developing an immersive Android app with 3D graphics, sensor control, and VR. The project consists of four assignments, each building upon the concepts and practical skills covered in the preceding courses.
